Ancestral Follower - Enemy in ER

Ancestral followers are horned folk who eschew letters and metalworking. They believe that the horns of a long-lived beast continue to bud like antlers until the beast becomes an ancestral spirit. They keep their distance from the Erdtree and await new buds to sprout from their flesh and souls. Ancestral followers wield repurposed animal parts as weapons, such as the jawbone axe, greathorn hammer, winged greathorn staff, and horn bow. They can be found in various locations and have the potential to drop the Ancestral Follower Set, thin beast bones, and budding horn.
